Conrad Hilton, Paris Hilton’s younger brother, was sentenced on Tuesday, June 16, to three years of probation for causing a disruption aboard an international flight last summer. He was also required to do 750 hours of community service and pay a $5,000 fine for his disorderly conduct.
The Hilton heir pleaded guilty in March to a misdemeanor assault stemming from a meltdown aboard a British Airways flight from London to Los Angeles on July 31, 2014. He allegedly yelled at the flight attendants, “If you wanna square up to me bro, then bring it and I will f**king fight you.” Moreover, the 21-year-old reportedly threatened them as saying, “I am going to f**king kill you” and punched the bulkhead of the plane 10 centimeters from a flight attendant’s face.
According to an affidavit written by an FBI agent who investigated the disturbance, Conrad was restrained and handcuffed during the flight after calling some passengers “peasants” and threatening the flight attendants. He also smoked marijuana and cigarettes in an airplane toilet.
After the mid-flight outburst, Conrad voluntarily checked into a 30-day inpatient drug and alcohol treatment program in February. Conrad’s attorney, Robert Shapiro, claimed that his client’s disruptive behavior was “the effects of a sleeping pill.”
